Design Vision

Conceived and brought to life by Chicago legends Helmut Jahn and Kara Mann, 1000M is a true masterwork, deftly contrasting the elegance of an ultra-modern polished glass and steel exterior with the warmth of its residentially-inspired, custom-tailored interiors.

—Helmut Jahn


Portrait of Helmut Jahn


Envisioned by the late legendary architect Helmut Jahn, and realized by the studio carrying on his name and legacy, 1000M marks the last residential tower by Helmut. Jahn has been called Chicago’s premiere architect who has dramatically changed the face of Chicago and has led to commissions across the US, Europe, Africa, and Asia. JAHN/ buildings have received numerous design awards and have been represented in architectural exhibits around the world.


Jahn/ sought inspiration from the site’s position at the intersection of nature and city. The east and west facades converge at sharp edges on the northeastern and southwestern corners, while the opposing corners resolve into soft curves.


The north and south building façades reflect interlocking triangles, which move in distinct planes away from each other along a shared diagonal seam that runs up the entire tower.


A playful grouping of organic curves and angled corners mimics the silhouette of the building while creating warm, personal living spaces.
